Can't access to "Flowable-Modeler", "Flowable-Task", "Flowable-Admin" sites


I have deployed the following modules:

  1. flowable-admin.war (
  2. flowable-idm.war (
  3. flowable-modeler.war (
  4. flowable-rest.war (
  5. flowable-task.war (

But can’t get access to them besides which is work correctly and I can get access to it.

When I try to get access for example to the ‘flowable-modeler.war’ (, Tomcat redirects me to the ‘http://localhost:8080/flowable-idm/#/login?redirectOnAuthSuccess=true&redirectUrl=’ .

I tested the Activity v6 and he has’t this problem. So let me ask what I need to do to resolve my problem with access (to flowable-admin, flowable-modeler, flowable-task) in Flowable v6 ?

Thanks in advance for your help!


It’s possible to configure the IDM url by setting the property

This can be done by modifying the .properties files. Or by setting an environment variable.



Thanks for your answer on my previous question!

Let me clarify for other users who will see this thread in future. I found the ‘’ in the next file: ‘/WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/flowable-ui-app/

As described here, you can always copy the from one of the WAR files (e.g. /WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/flowable-ui-app/ into the Tomcat/lib folder, so it’s picked up by all the Flowable apps. That means you only need to modify the database and IDM URL in one place.



thanks a lot for useful information and for link!

Hi Yvo/Paul,

I could’t decrypt your answers correctly, i am able access only http://localhost:8080/flowable-idm and not able to access other components like modeler, task etc.

Please help me.


Hi Senkar,

How do you run the Flowable ?
Do you run it with tomcat or with docker-compose ?

I have been running .sh scripts given(/flowable-engine-master/scripts/). i far as i remember i have stopped tomcat as it also running on 8080 to make http://localhost:8080/flowable-idm running.


Got the mistake i have made. Modeler, Task, Admin modules are running on different ports other than 8080. Now i am able to access all these modules.
